Cast of slab of riders from North frieze of Parthenon (figures 125-127, Slab XLV=Michaelis XL)
From: British Museum
RA Collection: Art
The cast is of a slab from the north frieze of the Parthenon and shows parts of five riders. The original slab, (45 Jenkins, 40 Michaelis), is in the British Museum. It was purchased from Lord Elgin in 1816.
The Royal Academy acquired twenty major casts of the Parthenon frieze between 1817 and 1869. The majority are of slabs of the north frieze and were displayed in the Schools until 2005 in two groups (slabs 36-39) and (slabs 40-47), which were framed by casts of the west and east frieze.
